Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Dead to the Core

Has anyone else read this book by Eric Wybenga ? ( Delta , 1997 )
I enjoyed this book thoroughly . It was gifted to me during my self imposed GD exile ( '95 - 03ish ). Outside of my occasional cd or cassette listening , Deadbase or this book , that was it for my GD experience in those years . I packed all my other GD books , DDN ( remember that ! ) and other memorabilia away .
Most of it is still packed away all these years later . I've fished a few things out , and stored them well , so the contents are in good condition ( an ex - friend once told me to burn the boxes , cause then I would be free of GD forever !? ) .
I enjoyed the book for it's hit and run style of reading . ( Great bathroom book - come on , were friends here , right ? ) I like the way he storyboards the book , beginning with breaking down the 30 years into 4 seasons . He clearly spent time on the road and has his perspective and favs .
It's Amazing how IA has made so much available to us at our fingertips . Remember the hunt to find a show , or a better copy ? This book gave me the hunger for some shows I did not have , and since I was out of the scene , it wasn't until IA that I was able to listen to them .
Can't let the title of this post go by w/out a show rec .

Yeah, but did the author ever cry over the fate of all sentient beings??

I just looked down: it's right there at my feet.

I don't remember doing this but it looks like at one time I was printing lists of rec. shows and stuffing them in the book at the corresponding section. Looks like I have years worth of listening before running out.

I like the book, too. It's where I found this gem.

And, it has a nice RxR Blues opener. Piano and bass very up front on this Vernon and Clevenger version. Have not listened to the other sbd's b/c this is one is nice.

Right there w/ you . Listening now . It's been awhile since I've listened to '73 . Thanks for the rec.
BRRB - only opened 2 other shows , 9 - 24 - 72 and 9 - 21 - 73

I went through the sources and picked this ,

but it's a close call w/ the original source ,

Just wait till you wade neck deep into the 2nd set. I'm not a Big River fan but this has to be a top version. The piano is waaaay up front and has a honky-tonk feel to it. It seems like this IS the way the song is supposed to be done.

Glad you like it.

I'm about 40 pages into my library copy, and I can already tell I need to own this book. While not as comprehensive, I;m liking it better than what I've seen of the Compendium series by Dwork & co.

Dude, I love that book, I have had it by my toilet for the past 13 years or so. I never get bored of it.

Well, that's eerie. I'm starting to wonder how many Deadheads simultaneously placed it next to the can.

I own it as well, for reasons that now pass understanding. It's completely overwritten, but if you can get past that, his recommendations and overviews are pretty sharp. Definitely introduced me to a number of shows, which was the point -- and that in the days before the forum.

Never did agree with covering '78 over '76 though.
